The motive for filing the copy of Ibis record with the 
library ia to have the help of such a3 may know facta regard- 
ing the family. 

When I began searching the family line our family had 
but little beyond one family of David Lyon, my great grandfather 
When the Lyon Memorial was consulted the statement was found 
that Alanson Forman Lyon, my grandfather, had died in 1823. As 
I had talked with him as late as 1688 and knew he lived until 
18 r Jl it seemed desirable to confirm the line as given in that 
record before accepting it. To accomplish this every book which 
might give information on this head ani which could be found 
in the Congressional Library at 7,'ashington or the Newberry 
Library at Chicago was read with care. Old cemetaeys in Conn. 
and L*ew York were visited, church records searched and a 
brief record of the lineage was made and seventeen copies sent 
to different persons who have done searching along parallel 
lines with a request that errors be pointed out. This compila- 
tion is the result of six years search along these lines. 

The chief differences between this record and the one 
in the Lyon Memorial are, beside the error regarding ray grand 
father, as follows:— 

1. Ancestry of Abigail Ogden, who married Thomas Lyon.'k >/Z 
3. Military record of David Lyon.,..; ' v 

3. Family of David Lyon. 

4. Ancestry of Charity Wilson who married David Lyon. --'-„' 

I will be glad to hear from any one who has any information 
along any of the lines touched in these pages, and will gladly 
exchange information possessed.

The author of the Lyon Memorial takes exception to the 
statement on page 1 and repeated on other pages that Thomas 
Lyon was of Scotch ancestry. Thomas is spoken of in letters 
as old as 1700 as being Scotch. The descendants of Richard 
emd Henry claim they were from Scotland. A descendant from 
(294) Samuel who has been in England and Scotland and made 
original investigations beleives they were from Perthshire, 
that Thomas, Richard and Henry were brothers and were sens of 
John Lyon, Yeoman, and his wife Elizabeth. It should be very 
clearly understood that there is 6mall evidence for or against 
the claim. Also, it should be said that Thomas was living in 
Gtamford in 1648 instead of Greenwich. 

It should be understood that the aim has been to make 
all names and dates absolutely accurate. Incidents related 
are given with les3 certainty as to accurack. The two should 
be separated. One is vital, the other merely interesting.

l.The first emigrant of this name in our line was Thomas Lyon, 
who sometimes spelled the name with an "i" instead of a >'v" , 

He was born at Glen Lyon, Perthshire, Scotland about 163.1. 
He appears to have been the eldest of three brothers, all 
of whom carae to Connecticut* It Is the legend that his 
brothers were soldiers in Cromwell's army and wore on guard 
at Whitehall when Charles. I was beheaded. This was in Jan. 
1648, or as we now reckon, 1849, and at that time Thomas 
was living at Greenwich. He appears to have been a man of 
some importance- in the community, an item in the town rec- 
ords of March 5, 1656 is "The town -of Rye adopted the fol- 
lowing, Thomas Lyon and Thomas Browne are appointed to 
choose a house to be fortified for the safety of the* towns S 
He was married first to Martha Joanna Winthrcp, daughter of 
Henry and Elizabeth (Fonee) Winthrop and grand daughter of 
Governor John Winthrcp, the puritan governor. Martha appears 
to have been too weak physically for the trial c of piercer 
life and died after giving birth to two children, the first 
dying in infancy, and the second, Mary, growing up and 
marrying. His second wife was Mary Hoyt, a daughter of 
Simon Hoyt, of Stamford. Letters from both Thomas and 
Martha are found among the published letters of Governor 
Winthrop, They indicate that Mary was born In Aug. 1543.

2. Thomas Lyon, eon of Thomas and Mary (Hoyt) Lyon, born i£88, 
married Abigail, daughter of John and Judith (Sudd) Ogden. 
John Ogden was a KEsioEi arf tke deputy from Rye to the Gen- 
eral Court of Connecticut at Hartford on Oct. 8, 1654. He 
is further mentioned in the records of Rye. Judith wae a 
daughter of John Budd. The Lyon Memorial gives the parents 
of Mayy as John and Jane $Bond) Ogden. Thomas Lyon was 
born in 1673. "Honest" John Ogden left Rye in 1644. His 
youngest child of record was born in 1654, he died in 1361 
and his wife sometime earlier. He lived at Elizabeth N. J. 
from 1552-3 until his death. While there is no extant rec- 
ord to show that it was as given above, there appears much 
more likelihood of it being correct than the other.

4. David Lyon, born May 25, 1741, married 1763 " Freelcve For- 
man and died of small pox on a prison ship in New York 
harbor in 1782 or 83, the date not being known. Freelcve 
Forman ( or Firmin) was born Aug. 6, 1744 and died May 14 
1821. Freelcve Forman was daughter of and Jane (Wat- 
son) Forman. The Watson line has rot been traced. James 
was son of Alanscn and Patience (Cgden) Forman. Hes grand 
parents were Ezekiel and Jane (Kni'ffen) Forman and John and 
Judith (Sudd) Ogden. His great gradfather was John Ferman 
who married Freelove Stayce. This name comes from Wales, 
the first of record being Gyles Fyrmyn, whose son Giles was 
an apothecary in England. He is supposed to be father of 
John, Giles and Thomas. John was the first to come to the 
colony, coming in 1830 and locating at 'A at er town. The next 
year Giles the apothecary came to the eoleny, eoon rcturnirg 
but after his return his sons Giles and Thomas cross on the 
fleet which brings Winthrop and John Willscn. John also 
returned to England, but came back In 1634 having married 
either in England or on hio return, Freelovo Stayce, 
The L3 T on Memorial gives what purports -to be the miltary T.14 
record of David Lyon in the Revolutionary -jar and then in r - 4 " 
an appendix takes it back. The records of New York during 
the revolution show four by the name of David Lyon. In the 
New York Line the first regiment aa3 a lieutenant David Lyai 
and the second regiment a private David Lyon. The Westchest- 
er Militia has a lieutenant David Lyon and the Dutchess Co. 
. Militia has a private David Lyon. The Eyon Memorial shows 
pretty conclusively that the David Lyon in Col. ?lcDougall r 3 
regiment who is spoken of as "A tolerable Officer'' was of 
Elizabeth N. J. and not of our branch. The records of the 
state of New York show in a published record called "Mew 
York In the Revolution" on page DOS? the name of David Lyon 
as a lieutenant. In the State Archive, vol. 1, p. 505 
^David Lyon appointed a lieutenant, 28 May 1778, in Capt 
Jacob Purdy T s company formed by the consolidation of the 
North and South Companies of North Castle of Colonel Thomas 
Thomas 1 regiment of Westchester County Militia'! In the 
manuscript records of the Treasurer, vol. 3 is found a

certificate, being Certificate #9793, for 17 pounds-, 1 
shilling, G^ pence, dated 33 July 1779, issued to David 
Lyon for services as lieutenant In Capt . Jacob Purdy T 'a 
company of Col. Thomas Thoma3 v regiment of Westchester 
county Militia. Abigail Lyon Addee and Hannah Lyon

Abigal Eldred, ^toagiit si at tiae granddaughter of the 
latter that their father had been an officer In the rev- 
olutionary war, that he was later captured by the British, 
was for a time confined in the "Sugar House" at New York 
and later on a prison ship, where he contracted the small 
pcx, died, and his body was cast into the sea. The date of 
his death was never known. The legend concerning his death 
was also told by his son Thomas to his descendants, as 
vouched for by Judge William P. Lyon of the Wisconsin Su~ 
preme Court. It was also told by David Lyon to hie children. 
The children of this union are given in the Lyon Memorial 
and the- authority for it is a record compiled by a son of 
the eldest son, Thomas. The record as given to his children 
by our ancestor, David, was different. Some of the other 
descendants have it still different. An effort has been me& 
mads in the list below to harmonise the known dates and to 
interpolate the others, dropping the mythical children.

his son. William, tombstone says, "Died May 10,1858, s—^4.

mads in Family Bible by his son A Ian son F. Hannah, church 
record, says born Apl. 4, 1775, die! May 7, 1853. Samuel, 
church record says died Nov. 7, 1839, aged 91 years. 

After the close of the war the family was broken up. 
Abigail married Daniel Adee, a blacksmith, who engaged in 
nail making in New York, and she took David, Samuel and 
Phoebe, and perhaps Hannah, with her to New York. David and 
Samuel learned their brother-in-laws trade. Our branch knove 
very little about the descendants of Thomas or Firrcln. It 
Is our understanding that hl'^Sn^d his wife failed to agee 
and separated, he going south, presumably to South Carolina 
where several of his cousins were, these were children of 
his mother *a brother. He had been a merchant, but at the 
time he went south he borrowed the money from his brother 
David to go with, giving him a gold headed cane, which he- 
said was all he had. David gave this cane to his son in 
law, George Rowley Lyon, upon his marriage to his daughter 
Susannah. It was later given to James W. Lyon by their 
daughter, Ann Lyon PsrLee. 


■David Lyon was born March 33, 1774, beg married Sept. 33, 
1797 Charity WillBon, and die! April 30, 1367. After learn- 
ing his trade in New York he went to what io now called 
P°rt Cheater, but wa3 then called Saw Pits, where he built 
a house and blacksmith shop . Charity Willson wan born at 
what is now called Glenville, Conn., but was then called 
Sherwood's Bridge. In 1300 they joined a company who out- 
fitted in New York City and in March crossed the Hudson 
River with their tearn3 on the ice. This seerr.o strange at this 
time, as the river is not now allowed to freeze over. There 
were over 100 families in this caravan, Elizabeth (Lyon) 
Jacobs, William Lyon, David Lyon, Benjamin Willson, Kniffen 
Wilson and perhaps Benjamin Willson Sr and Daniel Willson 
being among those from" the neighborhood and related to David 
Lyon who formed a part. This party went up the Hudson River, 
up its tributary to Cherry Valley and down the Chenango to 
where the town of Oxford is now situated, where moat of thorn 
built their log cabins and male their homes. David Lyon 
lived at Oxford until 1319 when he bought a small farm seven 
miles below on the Chenango river, James W. was born on 
this farmn, Alanson F. was born at Saw Pits and the others 
at Oxford. When Charity (Willeon) Lyon was on her death bed 
she- asked her husband to marry her cousin, Sally Sherwood 
to make a home for her babies. After her death David went 
back to Connecticut, driving in a one horse wagon, and saw- 
Sally. At first she refused, but Wilson Slawson, husband of 
Charity's sister Susan acted as mediation , and the matter 
was fixed up, and the wedding took place. Sally refused to 
go to Chenango County and David returned, sold hie little 
farm, took hia thhss youngest children and returned to Conn, 
and bought a little, plot of land, ten acres, on the Byruta 
river and built a shop and conducted it up to the year 
before his death. He was a blacksmith. Thi3 place was near 
the birthplace of his first wife and was then called Sher- 
wood's Bridge, and now Glenville, Conn. In making a home 
the marriage seems not to have been wholly successful, but 
one of the chidren remaining for any length of time, Eliza- 
beth and James leaving early. 

Charity Willson was daughter of Benjamin and Polly- (Knif- 
fen) Willson, her grandparents were Samuel Willson and Phebs 
Lyon. Samuel Willson was son of Samuel and Susannah (Ogden) 
Willeon. Samuel Willson was a dfe^P^er of John and Mary^Lyon) 
Willson. Susannah Ogden was daughter of Joseph and Susannah 
Ogden, Joseph being a brother to Abigail, who married Thomas 
Lyon. John Willson was a son of John Willson and grandson 
of Roger Willson, and Mary Lyon was daughter of Thomas and 
Martha Joanna (Winthrcp) Lyon. John Willson, son of Roger, 
married Susannah Eaton, supposed to have been a neice or 
daughter of Theophilus Eaton, Governor of New Haven colony. 
Polly, or Mary, Kniffen was daughter of Benjamin and Gertrude 
(Purdy-) Kniffen,- grand daughter of and Charity (Hop- 
ton)Kniffen and John and Rebecca (Brown) Purdy. John was 
known as "Still John" supposed from being a distiller. Her 
great grand parents were George Kniffen, the emigrant, name 
of wife not known, and Joseph and Jans (Budd) Morton, Josech 
Purdy and Thomas Brown, names of wives unknown. Joseph Mor- 
ton was a mileer, chief officer of the train band, vestry- 
man, a selectman in 1371, justice of the peace in 1673, was 
given authority by the General Court to marry persons and

general assembly.

Thomas (Major Thomas Lyon) 
Daniel (?) (Dr. Daniel of Great Bend, Fa.) 

It is only fair to state that so far as the writer knows 
the grounda fcr claiming that Dr. Daniel Lyon of Great Bend, Pa. 
was brother of Alexander, Samuel and Thomas Is that the last 
three came, up the river in a canoe from Great Bend where they 
spent some time before coming to Lyon Brook, the fact that 
Samuel named his oldest son Daniel, and family tradition cays 
that he was named for "Hie uncle, Doctor Daniel Lyon of Great 
Lend" and the further fact that there was at one time an heirloos 
said to have been presented by Dr. Daniel Lyon to his nephew 
and namesake. The Lyon Memorial gives a different ancestry for 
Dr. Lyon. 

Samuel came to Dew York in 1791 after serving in a Connec- 
ticut regiment during the revolution, he lived Tor a time at 
Great Bend, Pa. In 17S3 he with hie brother Thomas, and perhaps 
Alexander, cams up to Oxford in a canoe, and located four miles 
above the village at Lyon Brook.

George Rowley Susannah Lyon (#743") 

The writer here ventures to make a correction of a few of 
the statements seen in print regarding George Rowley Lyon. One 
is that he, G.R., learned his trade with David Maydole who for 
a long time wa3 a famous maker of hammers. Older men will recall 
the standing of Disston's saws and Maydole's hammers. George R. 
told me that David '.lay dole learned his trade with him, "Blew 
and struck for me in the old shop", as he expressed it. 

James W. Lyon (#750) told me "Geo. R. Lyon was of a family 
no kin to father. They settled at a place a few miles above. 
Oxford called Lyon's Brook. G. R. Lyon learned his trade with 
James A. Glover at Oxford at the time Alanson learned his with 
father. They started business together at Greens, the firm name 
being "G.R.i A.F.Lyon" which the boys of the town called "Great 
Red and Almighty Pierce Lyon". This shop has grown to the Lyon 
Iron Works at that place, now conducted by Walter Lyon, the onyy 
one of the name left of that family." Th e traie referred to 
was blacksmithins which was much more important then than now. 

Some efforts have been made. to connect Samuel Lyon, father 
of George R. with Samuel Lyon^utole of Alanson, # etc. As that 
Samuel went to Dew York and learned his trade from Daniel Adee 
at the same tire as did David, his brother, it is most probable 
they would have known of the relationship had there ^ been any. 
Some reports also state that David and Samuel cams in 1793. As 
shown on page 4, Cavil came to Oxford in 1800, his oldest con, 
Alanson being born at Saw Pits. Samuel came eight years earlier, 
These families knew of no connection. 



The first difference comes 
'(Lyon) Adee. In the record of the Adee family comes ffl3, Danie 
Adee, and the record says "?,.17SI, married May 16,1765, Abigal 
Lyon, daughter of David and Free love (Forma n) Lyon"', Further on 
is recorded "#14;, David Adee, bora 1735, married Jan«8, 1790, 
Abigail, daughter of John and Rut-h($rigga) Lyon". It 1b also 
recorded that while she is "of Rye" one is no kin to the wife 
of hia elder brother. ■' '.'■■.. 

' William Lyon was married In ogns of the old Dutch Churches 
and the record reads. "Jan. 13, 1791, Willis Loines j ,m. , HI syne 
Esopus e.t Stvntje "an der Merkt, j .d. Reel tit er ! ' . 

Mina was a younger sister of Tir.a, they being the two 
youngest of a large family and Mina wrote her daughter in 1819 
a history of their family and in closing she writes," Cf these 
ray brother- and sisters thereis little need be written. Marga- 
ret, Phi lit) and Wyanet after a life of usefulness have gone to 
their reward. All the others live near here and you, ■ my dear 
daughter, visit bhem all, if I may make exception of your aunt 
Tina, my dearest, sister. Her husband we know not, and she lives 
in the far wilderness of west ern Lew York where travel is not 
easy. Her marrying was not approved by my father, as her hus- 
band is a native of Connecticut of which colony the people are 
given much to deceit in business and pride themselves morion 
sharp dealing than seeking honor and the confidence of their 
neighbors. " 

Hannah left children and their descendants have the family 
record, which gives dates as hers used. 

The ancestry of Abigail Ogden must stand on the inherent 
improbability of her mother being Jane Bond, who was 50 years 
61d when Thomas Lyon was born. 

The ancestry of Charity Wilson is from a record made by 
her sister Gertrude and a daughter. It corresponds with the 
record given in the History of Fairfield. 


The three brothers, assumed to be such, Thomas, Richard and 
Henry Lyon are said to have come from G&en Lyon, Perthshire, 
Scotland. \ 

The first appearance of the name is Sic Roger de Louveyne who 
was a follower ofYvfi'lliam the Conqueror. His son was Sir Roger 
de Leonne and he received lands in Perthshire, which were 
called Glen Lyon. His son Peganus went to the Holy Land with 
Geoffrey Plantagenet\ 

One of the later, Sir John de Lyon was the sirs of the Scottish 
Earls of Strathraore to wliom reference is made in Roife's edi- 
tion of Macbeth* \ / 

It is possible that the thrive brothers were sons of "John Lyon 
Yoernan'jJ of whom it is recbrded that a woman was punished for 

bewitching his son John/ and for making his son William lame* 
He had sons William, Jrihn. Thomas, Samuel and Henry, also that 
"1 Harsh, 14 Ja::ies, (1616; True bill was found against Eliza-* 
bath, wife of John Lyon, Yeoman',' and a second time on 25 March 
15, James against same "For not attending church, chapel, etc." 

As our ancestor, Thomas was fined twice in Connecticut for not- 
attending religebus services, he having espouse! the cause of 
the Quakers, although never formally uniting with them, it is 
possible this was a family trait, and his descendants may not 
be entirely to blame for their shortcomings.
